Former Iowa State basketball coach Johnny Orr dies

Johnny Orr, the fist-pumping basketball coach who led Iowa State into national prominence and Michigan to the national title game, has died. He was 86. Orr would enter Hilton Coliseum to the “Tonight Show” theme with his trademark fist pump, helping cultivate a tremendous home-court advantage for the Cyclones, later dubbed “Hilton Magic.”
